Update 10:30pm – School board incumbents in front following latest county vote update


Following an evening of mail in ballot counting, the results of the North Penn School Board Director election have changed significantly. As of 10:30pm, the final counting update of the evening, all four incumbent board candidates, Tina Stoll, Christian Fusco, Jonathan Kassa, and Al Roesch are in the lead, Michael Kennedy, the leading vote getter on the Republican side, trails Roesch by 1,124 votes.

The county will continue to update numbers tomorrow.

The following statement is posted on the Montgomery County Election Results website:

Mail-In and Provisional ballots are still being processed. All ballots cast in person have been recorded. The County will continue to update the dashboard below on a regular basis in the coming days as eligible ballots are validated and counted. Due to several factors, final results are expected to be delayed.

First, the County is sequestering the returned ballots related to the previously announced misprint of mail-in ballots by its printer. Affected ballots are subject to a separate verification process that was approved by the Montgomery County Board of Elections and shared with both political parties as well as the Pennsylvania Department of State.

Second, the County encountered a higher than usual number of ballots that cannot be read by the ballot scanners. The County is following an established process for bi-partisan teams to re-create the impacted ballots to make sure every eligible vote is validated and counted. This process occurs during every election as there are various reasons ballots are sometimes unable to be scanned.

The County estimates that approximately 23,000 ballots are affected by these two issues.

This is the last update for the evening. Ballot processing will continue Thursday morning.
